Mumbai: Dozee, healthcare startup that provides contactless remote patient-monitoring will soon launch an easy-to-use ambulatory electrocardiogram (ECG) patch to monitor patients with cardiovascular disease (CVD). This ECG patch is set to augment and play a key role in assisting health care professionals (HCPs) in identifying early signs of cardiac deterioration ensuring there is timely medical intervention, thereby improving patient safety.
“The ambulatory ECG patch monitors the electrical activity of the heart continuously over multiple days. It will help detect critical cardiac arrhythmias, so HCPs can manage critical situations with swift data-backed medical decisions. Since, it also allows them to remotely monitor vital parameters such as heart rate, respiration rate, blood pressure, oxygen saturation, and temperature, HCPs can get a comprehensive understanding of the patient’s condition,” a company statement said.
The ECG patch is small, flexible, light and convenient to use and the physician can remotely get alerts and view the live and continuous ECG of the patient from anywhere as the system is cloud-enabled.
Dr Ruchit Shah, Interventional Cardiologist, Saifee Hospital, Mumbai, said “Patients who are at risk of suffering from a cardiovascular incident tend to show some signal intensity changes on ECG which can be picked up by continuous remote monitoring. These changes, when picked up early and detected can be treated on time and can be lifesaving. Dozee’s ECG patch is a small step in early detection and treatment and can help in improving longevity, lifestyle and reduction in mortality.”
Commenting on the new technology, Mudit Dandwate, CEO & Co-founder, Dozee, said “This technology can be especially pivotal in India, as cardiovascular disease has become the leading cause of morbidity and mortality over the last three decades. We envisage that Dozee’s Remote Patient Monitoring (RPM) portfolio will become an integral part of cardiac care in the near future both in hospital and at home.”
Dozee’s new foray into cardiology will help take patient safety to the next level and change the way patients are monitored in the hospital – ensuring support across the spectrum of public and private healthcare.
